Hillary was the US Secretary of State, Bill is a former US president, both are selling themselves as still in power, still influencing the government and one who might run for president. But Hillary has been caught RED handed taking millions in “donations” from the red Chinese for her so-called foundation. This is nothing short of influence peddling.
Imagine if a Republican had taken millions in donations from one of this country’s biggest enemies??
A CBS News investigation has found that at least one foreign company with close ties to its government has been giving generously to the foundation run by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.
Since its founding, the Clinton Foundation has invested millions each year for work in fighting AIDS and empowering women, but its recent uptick in donations from foreign governments has been raising questions about the potential influence on Hillary Clinton, as she gets ready to run for president.
The foundation has raised at least $42 million from foreign governments – and according to an analysis by CBS News – at least $170 million from foreign entities and individuals.
One donor – Rilin Enterprises- pledged $2 million in 2013 to the Clinton Foundation’s endowment. The company is a privately-held Chinese construction and trade conglomerate and run by billionaire Wang Wenliang, who is also a delegate to the Chinese parliament. Public records show the firm has spent $1.4 million since 2012, lobbying Congress and the State Department. The firm owns a strategic port along the border with North Korea and was also one of the contractors that built the Chinese embassy in Washington.
What is Hillary promising the Chinese that she’ll do once she becomes president?
